PlayStation Plus Cloud Storage Has Increased To 100 GB

As Sony announced late last month, the PlayStation Plus program got a big boost in its cloud storage today. This means your save files are safe and sound in Sony's cloud service with a huge number of saves now possible. Sony has bumped storage up from 10 GB to a whopping 100 GB.

The addition comes as Sony pulls away from offering PS Plus support for legacy systems, both PlayStation 3 and Vita, starting next month but keeping the price the same. Sony likely knows they needed to turn something up or on to keep bolstering the argument for paying for the yearly service.

Respawn Confirms Some Apex Legends Heroes Are LGBTQ

Respawn Confirms Some Apex Legends Heroes Are LGBTQ

When Respawn launched Apex Legends, their free-to-play battle royale shooter set in the Titanfall universe, they introduced all the heroes with in-game and website biographies. Some of these biographies suggested that some characters are fairly diverse in terms of sexual and gender identity, which Respawn has now confirmed.

The character Bloodhound, Apex Legends' tracker extraordinaire, does not use gendered pronouns in the character bio on their website, leading fans to speculate that the character does does not identify as either gender. When asked by Rock Paper Shotgun if this means Bloodhound is non-binary, community manager Jay Frachette confirmed that fact.

The other confirmation is a lot more obvious with the character Gibraltr, a large man holding up a giant shield. In the character's bio, when talking about Gibraltr's more rebellious path, a line referring to a significant other appears: "He only began to understand the value of protecting others when he and his boyfriend stole his father’s motorcycle, took it on a joyride, and got trapped by a deadly mudslide."

Epic Games Store Version Of Axiom Verge Briefly Broken Due To Mistake With Steam File

Epic Games Store Version Of Axiom Verge Briefly Broken Due To Mistake With Steam File

Axiom Verge, the 2D Metroid-like that is itself quite well liked, is free on the Epic Game Store right now. That means that you can download it and start playing it, which many people did, only to discover there was a progress-blocking bug exclusive to the Epic Games Store version. When players entered a certain room, the game would just crash without fail. It turns out the reasons why are related to Steam and a bad case of find-and-replace.

Players started noticing the issue earlier in the day and were tweeting to Epic and developer Tom Happ over the issue. Some started speculating that perhaps Epic's launcher had something to do with it, but the answer was actually something way simpler: Happ accidentally named a sound file an inconvenient name.

For anyone missing Steam.xnb from the Epic store, please go to AV in your library, click the gear icon, Verify, then Update.
I was thinking it being Epic and all, I shouldn't include valve's dlls and such, so I excluded all files with "Steam" in the name... oops.

Capcom Given Choice To Make Dragon's Dogma 2, Decided On Devil May Cry 5 First

Capcom Given Choice To Make Dragon's Dogma 2, Decided On Devil May Cry 5 First

Dragon's Dogma is almost the definition of a cult hit. Despite not lighting the world on fire with its original 2012 release, the game slowly built up a fervent fanbase through re-releases and remasters and now has a chorus of people in constant demand of a sequel. It turns out now a Dragon's Dogma 2 might have been next month's big Capcom game if a decision were made differently.

Speaking to Hideaki Itsuno, director of most of the Devil May Cry series and Dragon's Dogma, spoke to VG24/7 about how Devil May Cry 5 came to be.

"When the discussion came up for Devil May Cry 5, I went to Kenzo [Tsujimoto, founder of Capcom] and I said I want to make either Devil May Cry 5 or Dragon's Dogma 2 next," Itsuno told the outlet. "He said okay, do whatever you want. Do whichever you want. So I thought, alright, you know what? Let's do DMC5. So we did that."
